to duke it out over the debt ceiling, one said we should get rid of it all together? does ben bernanke have a point? >> the nra releases a new target practice ap for kids as young as 4. >> we have a packed show for you this morning. mike thompson joins us and greg walden is our guest. the congressman and newly crowned miss america, mallory hagen will be joining us. tuesday, january 15th and starting point begins right now. . >>> welcome to starting point. after years and years of lying to the world, lance armstrong is finally coming clean. there report he's confessed to oprah winfrey and he used drugs to win his titles. sources say he is in talks to have some of the millions he was paid by the postal service to sponsor the tour. cnn's ed is live in austin, texas. let's talk about what he told oprah and what the next steps are for lance armstrong. >> the big question will be to what extent did he confess and how much detail is he going to offer? also from the standpoint of how did he offer it and what was the body language there? lance armstrong is an athlete who is vehement in his deni
a vote that will delay the debt ceiling for three months. so what they are doing, if you really look at house republicans who took the majority two years ago, they did it standing on principle for pretty much every squirmish. it seems that they are becoming a bit more sophisticated, rather, but their understanding, it seems, is that you have to pick your battles. losing credit ratings and so forth, that's not a smart battle to wage. look at some of the most conservative members of the house talking to deirdre walsh at the end of their retreat for three days about picking their battles in a better way. >> deal with the smaller ones first, maybe build up a little momentum, credibility, not only with the credit markets but with the folks back home, that we can actually deal with these things, take the small one first, debt ceiling last, i think it's a rational, reasonable thing to do. >> now, for some, wolf, maybe even those in the republican house leadership, like him talking about what is rational and reasonable, that may be a bit jarring but the house republicans are coming out of th
to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night working on this very issue, he said we don't have the votes. that's now, and that is before the president goes
in this coming fight over the debt ceiling. in a big shift today, house republicans said they will vote to lift the limit for three months, but on the condition that the senate passes a budget. wall street liked this idea. the dow finished up almost 54 points to hit its highest closing level since december 10th of '07. nasdaq finished with a small loss. s&p 500 was up 5 points. also at five-year highs. >>> in washington tonight, it's starting to feel like a city that's about to host an inauguration. for the 57th time in the history of our republic, and host hundreds of thousands of people on a cold monday in january. our white house correspondent, peter alexander, is in lafayette park across from the white house, in front of the reviewing constant tonight. peter, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you. those are the best seats in the house, for a variety of reasons, including the fact they have heat. that's where the president and the first family will be watching monday's parade. the second obama inaugural is expected to draw roughly a third of the nearly 2 million people who ca
of saying hey, we're not going to lift the debt ceiling, you say, yeah, we will for three months and then go ahead and pass a budget in that time period. is that possible? >> i sure hope so. obviously that's the goal. that's been my goal for the last 18 months since i've been in the senate. obviously to push the senate to do something. as you mentioned, we haven't had a budget for almost four years. washington, d.c i think we can agree on one thing, that the worst run institution in america right now is the united states congress. we need to do something different. >> brian: so to do that, you got to get to some control over your own colleagues and to do that, hold on to their paycheck. republicans like darrell issa say i think that's unconstitutional. >> there is a lot of people in washington, d.c. that obviously don't want to cut their pay. the purpose of that constitutional amendment was to make sure that members of congress didn't enrich themselves during the legislative session. i'll tell this to darrell issa and nails wants to make this argument. cut your pay and go back to your distri
with this debt ceiling, we do it in a fiscally responsible manner. >> would you be willing given your point of view overall in borrowing money that if kansas pays in a dollar, gets $1 back so 12 cents of every dollar, assume for a moment that number is right, this is the tax foundation number, that you would give that back, kansas would get a whole lot less from the federal government right now, would you sign on to that? >> well, i don't agree with those numbers. we got a whole tax code that actually helps states like new york that have higher taxes because they can take that off their federal income taxes. that has to be part of that as well. but i think we need to do -- certainly helping those in need is probably something we should be doing but if you're not going to spend 80% of the dollars for two years, what's the rush? let's get to the direct needs right now and that's what i think's important. that's why i offered transparency amendment that said let's go see where this money is going. that went on there. i think that's important. fema needs reform. we should have reformed it the l
, the most immediate problem, tomorrow the house is voting on this extended debt ceiling and this is to avoid a confrontation in the short-term, but the large ers issues remain. >> that was quite a performance saying don't go there. i got this one, and they backed away. that has been lost in the excitement over the last couple of days. it just gets kicked down the road, and can you tell from his speech yesterday that he has -- the democratic coalition is in no mood to give an inch on spending, and it remains the big problem whether you really, democrat or republican, on the budget because it was unaddressed in the last round. you can tell the republicans want to get at it. if that was a sign of compromise yesterday, it was the shortest one sentence sign that i have ever seen. so a fight is come. >> a fight is coming, and we all know that you can not do it without dealing with the main entitlements. there is no way -- >> well, that's exactly right. >> there is no way at this stage without -- >> dealing with that. in that speech he made it very clear where he said -- >> he is not going anywhere
dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing the country together. republicans are saying the early signals they've seen from the president at the start of the second term suggest pretty much more of the same. take a listen. >> he's going to talk about our political system doesn't require us to resolve all our disputes our political differences but it does require us to seek common ground. he will make that point very strongly, that people here in washington need to seek common ground. >> i was surprised this week to see him transition his campaign committee into an ongoing campaign style effort to have an impact on the washington debate because it doesn't seem to me that the lessons of the first term would be that that worked out very well. >> now, interesting. the vice-president, joe biden, was sworn in several hours before the president over at his official residence. we're told that's because he was sworn in by justice sonia sotomayor. she needed to get to a book sig

and file about a short-term extension of the nation's debt ceiling. it might be brief, authorization the nation's borrowing authority for a couple of months at the republican retreat in williamsburg, virginia right now. the house budget committee chairman, paul ryan says it might offer a better chance of getting the democratic-controlled senate and white house involved in talks without a deal by march. drastic spending cuts could kick in and the government could face a possible shutdown. there seems to be kate a little movement on that. we'll see how far it goes. >> when they all get back. >>> a key part of every u.s. president's swearing in is of course the bible that he has placed, that he places his hand on when placing the oath of office. cnn's lisa sylvester had a pretty rare look and was able to actually look and touch the bible. >> touched it yourself. >> i've got to say, this was a pretty cool assignment. >> it's very unique and a really neat part of the inauguration. >> this is something that i learned. the library of congress actually has 1,500 bibles in i
